Forum: GratefulDead Subject: weird and stupid stories...



Deer Creek 93, I'm sitting by a campfire and behind me my buddies girlfriend is talking (groovy pscycho babble, of course) to some chick whose passing through the campsite, eventually I turn around to see that this woman is buck naked (twas a shame that she was not s sweet magnolia, 20 years of age with a killer body, but rather an aged hippy chick, her skin more like a mcdonald's hot apple pie crust than supple like a peach...)...she had been dosing for 15 years straight...

Las Vegas 92--I'm standing in a group of six people in my section of the parking lot, this one dude is proudly displaying his brand new glass pipe that was one of those $100 specials, hadn't even smoked it yet...we're all relative strangers and one of the dudes offers to pack the pipe, he does and takes a big fuckin' toke, he starts handing it back to the "owner' but it gets fumbled in the exchange and drops and shatters on the concrete...a very awkward moment indeed...rather than stick around for the aftermath it was my cue to go find a chicken pita...

This was a relatively recent post, but here's the link. It explains what's more than likely my weirdest & scariest moment @ a show.

http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=137264

Here's another weird one. RFK in '93? Or was it '92? Had purchased some fine fungus for all of us that went down in my bus---little brother & girlfriend, my wife & her best friend, wife's cousin & brother. After 45mins of coming on I HAD to take a walk. Walking from the far lot on the other side of the drum bridge along the river. Remember seeing those stupid morons who thought they'd drive through all of the folks under that bridge? I recall seeing some dudes girl yelling @ him as to how stupid he was for trying it---kinda funny because the car was NOT moving for all the people under the bridge. Sorry, here's the weird part---I got to the other side of the bridge & just as I was coming out into the sunlight the crowd around me seemed to open up. Standing in front of me was this kid of maybe 17 or 18 taking his whippit balloon from his lips. I watch in psychedelic horror as his eyes roll up into his head and he falls flat on his face (with a loud SMACK!!!) & starts convulsing. I'm trippin a little too hard to consider taking on someone elses problems, and everyone else just stares at him for a few seconds as if to say "somebody do something!" Then some fine sister picks him up & there's blood running from his nose & eyebrows & there are little stones imbedded in his face.

The proliferation of nitrous/hippie-crack was a bad addition to the scene as far as I was concerned. This kid wasn't the only one I saw fall down from too much oxygen being cut off to the brain, and too many frat/sorority/jock partiers helped fuel these bad scenes.

Walking through the parking lot after a Phil show at Starlake and a dude came walkin up to me wearin a pair of hip waders and vest with fly fishing garb all over it carrying a fly rod the whole deal. I ask if he was having any luck. He looked at me with a straight face and said he had just caught a rainbow trout "over By that light", if you've ever been to Starlake you know that there is no water for miles around. I had quit dosin years before, but I had some friends with me who kept askin"where was he fishin, was he for real?" I watched him walk around for a while and every person he passed who was trippin ask the same thing"was that guy really fishin?"

I don't know... I went there in '92 for the only 2 times the GD played there (had front row center ticket for the first show---orchestra Row A Seat 9 out of only 20 seats) and I seem to recall a small creek running through the woods outside the parking lot. That was 15 years ago, so through the fog of all the THC spanning the synapses those 2 days (and so many days over 15 years) I could be wrong.

In search of a cold one and a comfy place to sit and drink it after an amazing show (date unknown at this point-nineteen eighty something), so we thought we'd try the golf course country club elsewhere at the expansive Alpine Valley recreational complex. Walked in. Heard a lounge lizard singing Feelings. Walked out. Bought a beer back up in the parking lot.

There was a fucked-up naked chick who stumbled through our campsite twice at Schwagstock last May. We had to run her off. Bad example for the children (being a fucked-up naked chick, that is, not running her off).
